The Marantz ES7001 is a suave ‘all-in-one’ system that will please all audiophiles. Besides its sleek looks, the system delivers surround sound from the one box. Hook it to your Blu-Ray, DVD, or CD player and enjoy the movie or songs. It’s taken three years of painstaking research to come out with this perfect audio solution. Also called the Cinemarium, the design includes six-speaker drivers arranged in special tweeter, midrange, and woofer configuration; and each individually powered by a hi-fi quality digital class D amplifier, housed in an incredibly solid extruded aluminum monocoque enclosure. This amazing ‘soundbar’ also features three powerful 32-bit digital processors on board. One is used for Dolby/DTS decoding, while the other two implement the complex algorithms that produce surround sound from a single box with ultimate accuracy and speed.
Marantz ES7001 ‘all-in-one’ system also features one cable HDMI connection to the display. Marantz has developed a proprietary technology called OPSODIS (OPtimal SOurce DIStribution) in conjunction with the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research (ISVR) in Japan. Together they have realized a superior surround image, which offers a clearly focused soundstage and improved effect area. Marantz ES7001 system costs £899.90 or $1,787.
